7:00 am
on the pope's agenda, a white house session and praying at ground zero in new york and the world meeting of families in philadelphia. francis' signature is reaching out, stopping for those in society often ignored, leaving no baby unblessed, no gift unacknowledged. on the flight to havana the pope told me he wants to meet the american people, so much so he requested a ride in central park. he will take in a sound up jeep wrangler. francis' love of crowds gives those charg a with protecting him headaches and widespread security preparations are already well under way. the head of papal security tells me there's no specific security threat to the pope on this trip, and he is confident in the secret service protection plan. today pope francis travels to the cuban countryside and he will visit one of the holiest shrines in this country, a shrine that draws pilgrims from all over latin america. savannah, back to you. >> all right, anne thompson,
7:01 am
john miller is deputy commissioner of intelligence and counterterrorism for the new york city police department, a key component of the massive security effort being put into place for the pope's visit. john, good morning. >> good morning. >> it's good to see you. how would you describe this type of security challenge. >> well, this is the single larger and most complicated security undertaking in the history of the nypd, not because the pope hasn't been here before. popes have traveled to new york many times it's because you have the u.n. general assembly with 170 world leaders. you have the president of the united states coming at some point during this, and you have the pope, and the difference here is new yorkers especially are used to the president passing through. they are used to world leader traveling across town. it's a factor of having the u.n. in town, but they will actually stop in large, large numbers and gather to see the pope, so running all three of those at once has never been done before. >> anne touched on it in her piece.
7:02 am
this is a pope who likes to get out and be with the people. he wants to touch people and shake hands. is that something you're comfortable with him doing in new york city? >> you know, when you are the pope, it really doesn't matter if we're comfortable with it if he decides he's going to hope out of the car, so, you know, what we've done working with the lead agency here, this is a nsse, a national security special event so the secret service has overall command for the protection of the pope and the event, but we're going to have thousands and thousands of cops who work hand in glove and we have a very layered approach to this which is we have a plan and if we have to divert a plan, especially if he decides to, we're prepared for that. >> it's about protecting the pope. it's also about protecting the crowds that come to see the pope because as you well know isis has made no secret of its desire to go after soft targets like that. >> well, that's right. you know, we've seen that in the boston marathon bombing model,
7:03 am
focused on the key protectee here which is the pope and we'll have a lot of things in the background and there will be plain clothes people in the ground and there's a network of cameras, a number of detectors and sensors and that's all part of it. >> going to be a busy week for all of you. thanks for being here. appreciate it. >> good to see you. with more than 60 million catholics in the united states, what will this pope find when he arrives here. according to the new shriver report, a survey of american catholics 77% say his teachings match up with their beliefs. >> but there are notable exceptions and a lot more on this survey that later on when special anchor emshriver joins us here live. >> and we'll turn now to politics and things certainly getting interesting in the republican race for president bolstered by a strong debate performance performance. carly fiorina is now in second place behind donald trump. we'll talk to donald in a moment but first let's get to nbc national correspondent peter alexander. peter, good morning. >> reporter: hey, willie, good morning to you. donald trump's momentum seems to be facing and ben carson is facing calls he drop out of the
7:04 am
race from a prominent muslim-american group after controversial comments he made about islam and the presidency and us a noted carly fiorina has rocketed up in the polls. this morning two top-tier republicans are on the defensive. ben carson telling nbc's chuck todd he would not support a muslim president. >> i would not advocate that we put a muslim in charge of this nation, i absolutely would not agree with that. >> reporter: later carson's campaign clarified his statement insisting he has great respect for the muslim community but just doesn't people the american people are ready for a muslim president. donald trump till fending off questions about his failure to correct a questioner who wrongly claimed that president obama is a muslim and blamed muslims for being a problem in the u.s. >> i have friends that are muslims. they are great people, amazing people, but we certainly do have a problem.
7:05 am
throughout the world. >> reporter: what's the problem? >> well, you have radicals that are doing things. i mean, it wasn't people from sweden that blew up the world trade center. >> reporter: both controversial comments come after another shake-up and anp already unpredictable republican race. trump's lead dwindling down eight points since the start of september, and catapulting over carson carly fiorina fresh off her strong debate showing. after fiorina trargted trump on the debate stage. >> i think women all over the country heard very clearly what mr. trump said. >> reporter: trump is firing back. >> she she's got a good pitter patter, but if you listen to her for more than five minutes straight you get a headache. >> reporter: overnight trump attacked fiorina's business record tweeting fiorina did such a horrible job at lose ent and hewlett-packard, virtually destroying both companies, that she never got another ceo job offer, and one other item that's worth noting this morning. the total collapse of wisconsin governor scott walker. he once hovered at the top of the polls. walker now gets legs than a half of a percentage point. savannah and willie. >> peter alexander on the
7:06 am
>> let's turn to donald trump who joins us on the phone. mr. trump, good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. >> i'll remind you at the top because i know you'll remind me if you don't have you still lead in every single point but the latest national poll by cnn does show a decrease for you and more importantly in all of the polls done post-debate carly fiorina is surging. do you consider her a threat? >> well, i think when people find out what a horrible job she did in business running two companies into the ground, lose ent and hp, i think that, you know, she lost to barbara boxer in a landslide. she was leading that race, a race that should have been won by republicans and she got absolutely decimated in that race. >> why do you think she's surging now in. >> because she's got a good line of pitter patter, and if you listen to her speaking it's the same line that i will speak to my friend bebe netanyahu, et cetera, et cetera. she says it over and over and a lot of people didn't hear it in the debate and they heard it for
7:07 am
the first time. almost robotic. you look at it and it's robotic, but i think people will understand her soon and when they look at her record of tremendous failure, look, she took lose ent into the ground. she took hp into the ground, destroyed it, and i think that, you know, and then she ran for the senate in a race that should have been won and lost because of the fact that she did so badly as a business leader. the head of the yale school of business, one. heads, wrote a report that was one of the most vicious i've ever seen. i mean, it was true, but it was a very strong report, so i think, you know, when people see her record i don't see how she can possibly win and the reason she lost when she ran for the senate, and she lost in a landslide, is when her record was exposed. >> let's talk about you. obviously you've gotten a lot of attention for some comments that were made by a voter at a town hall late last week. the voters said, among other things, the problem in this country is muslim. now you have since said that you
7:08 am
know many muslims. you have friends who are muslims and they are excellent, fabulous and great and have a great respect and love for them. if that's the case why didn't you say that right then and there? >> well, i said it always. i've never had a problem with muslims. you do have an individual problem where you have some radicals that are causing problems, and i can be politically correct. somebody said oh, how can you say that, and i said give me a break, it's all over the world. that's all we're talking about. you turn on the nightly news and turn on the newscasts, no matter where you are, you have a problem. people don't have to admit that, savannah. they can try and keep it nice and cool, but the fact is you do have a problem, and it's a problem that has to be addressed. >> i think there is this issue of radical islam, but that's not what this voter said. he said the problem in this country is muslims, and i guess my question to you is would you have corrected him if he had said something like the problem in this country is christians or the problem in this country is -- >> i assumed he was talking about the radical islam, and
7:09 am
again, no matter where you turn you're reading about it and you're seeing it. it's an amazing problem. it's a very big problem. now, i fully understand the muslims are great people and i have many friends and i have -- and they are great friends. by the way, they are concerned with radical islam, too, but i assumed that that what he was talking about. >> let me ask you one more thing. he also said the president is muslim and the president is not an american. do you take any responsibility for the popularity of those views when you yourself for many, many years were a big proponent of the notion that the president was not born in the united states? do you bear any responsibility for the fact that voters who think that are attracted to your campaign? >> well, savannah, he made statements. it's not my obligation to defend the president, and is the president going to defend me because last night during the emmy awards people said things about me or is the president going to hold a news conference today? i don't think so. >> do you feel response for attracting those views? >> i don't think it's my
7:10 am
obligation to defend him. i mean, i have no obligation to defend him, and most people agree with that. now, you know, when he makes his statements, he's asking me a question. i actually said nothing. this is the first time in my entire life that people have made something controversial with respect -- >> i think that's because it's so drinking, donald, for you not to say something. that's why people think by remaining silent you tacitly agreed. >> a man was asking a question and i decided why should i come to the defense of the president, he won't come to my defense and most people agreed with what i did. as far as polls are concerned, the only poll you didn't put up which was the nbc poll where i'm way at the top. i'm much more than double and i don't understand why nbc is using a cnn poll which was also a good poll. i'm leading by a lot, but the nbc poll that you announced yesterday was fantastic, and you didn't talk about that. >> well, i tried to. >> i'm just saying this, why aren't you talking about your own poll?
7:11 am
why are you showing a cnn poll which is very good but not as good as one you put up yesterday? >> i should have mentioned our nbc poll by name and i did say that you were leading by every poll. >> you put up the cnn poll but not the nbc poll and you're the ones that are paying for the nbc poll so i don't get it other than the nbc poll is a very good poll for trump. >> it's a good poll for trump. the cnn one is a good one for you, too, you're leading by double digits. >> nbc was better. >> fair enough. we'll leave it there. thank you for your time. always appreciate it. >> donald is up 15 in that nbc survey. a nighttime of stars in los angeles for the 67th annual emmy awards. hollywood turning out in force to honor t ves's best. nbc joe fryar has the highlights and surprises. joe, good morning. >> reporter: "game of thrones" made history winning 12 emmys shattering the previous record held by "the west wing" and "veep" took the crown

back with him right af what do a nascar driver... a comedian... and a professional golfer have in common? we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto . xarelto is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto has also been proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. i tried warfarin before, but the blood testing routine and dietary restrictions had me off my game. not this time. not with xarelto . i'll have another arnold palmer. make mine a kevin nealon. really, brian? hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more ea sily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop.
7:41 am
xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleedin g, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto , watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not tak e xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto , tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto has been prescribed more than 11 million times in the u.s. and that number's growing. like your guys' scores. with xarelto there is no regular blood monitoring, and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto was the right move for us.
